Re: [PATCH 1/3] ipc: Refactor sysvipc internal definitions

Sorry, would you please re-phrase?  I don't understand the wire-up
terminology in this context.

Replace “would not required add a ipc_priv.h” with “will no longer need
to add ipc_priv.h”?

Again, I don't understand this terminology.

Isn't that the __OLD_IPC_SEQ_TYPE default?  (This applies to other
architectures as well.

In fact, __OLD_IPC_SEQ_TYPE appears to be unsighed short int always, so
I think it shouldn't be parameterized.

See above.

Rest looks okay to me.
